B-Cell Reconstitution After Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplantation (ABMT)
It is well known that patients subjected to ABMT present a profound and long lasting immunological impairment. Although the pattern of the phenotypic expression and the function of T cells, as well as the immunoglobulin levels and the capacity to produce specific humoral responce after ABMT have been extensively studied (1), few informations have been produced on the B-cell lineage. In this study we analized the pattern of B-cell reconstitution in the bone marrow (BM) and peripheral blood (PB) in the firtst 3 months after ABMT.
